MSNBC’s Katy Tur slammed President Donald Trump for waiting 27 hours to admit he made a mistake during his joint press conference with Vladimir Putin.
“This is one of those times where the president’s denial about what he said all but confirms what he said,” Tur said. “The president gave an interview with Fox after the Putin summit and he did not try to correct what he said. The president tweeted nearly ten times after the Putin summit and he didn’t try to correct what he said.”
She continued: “The White House distributed talking points about the summit today, which NBC news obtained and they didn’t try to correct what he said. The director of national intelligence, put out a statement in response to the president’s comments at the summit, and he didn’t try to correct what Mr. Trump said. Guys, if the president’s advisors thought he misspoke, why would it take 27 hours for someone to tell us?”
Tur said that President Trump must think people are dumb.
“Did the president just pee on our leg and tell us that it’s raining?” she asked.
